Review Detail

 
Duplais Verte
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Lush, summery green.

Louche: Oily sunsets giving way to a beautiful hologram of colors...green-blue and deep red.

Aroma: Smell isn't particularly big or fragrant, but is sweet and has a nice perfumed wormwood scent.

Flavor: Lots of wormwood. It's very peppery, with lots of warm spice, mintiness, and almost a metallic sour tanginess.

Finish: Tounge-numbing and tingley in a warm, but not alcohol-heated way. Nicely sweet and cool, with a really lovely flavor.

Overall: After having tried some decent absinthes from Matter, and some excellent ones, this absinthe is definitely nearing the excellent camp. It would be hard to dislike this one.
